French Influence in Europe Waning

Comment on this article

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, former Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti warned that France’s central involvement with the EU will continue to weaken it.  He observed: “In the last few years we have seen France receding in terms of actual economic performance, in terms of complying with all the European rules, and above all in terms of its domestic public opinion which is turning more and more against Europe” (March 21, 2015). “‘France is the big problem of the European Union because the whole construct has been leveraged on the foundation of a solid Franco-German entente. If it isn’t there then there is a poor destiny for Europe,’ said Mr Monti. ‘We’ve seen that the strong axis is no longer so strong’” (ibid.). “In a warning to France, Mr Monti said: ‘Maybe you forgot, but we all remember that France was the country that wanted the euro, not Germany’” (ibid.). 

Bible prophecy reveals the Israelite-descended nations will go into captivity under the European “beast” power at the time of the end. But, will France be inside or outside the “beast” power? The increasing EU frustration with France will be interesting to watch.
